Shellie Pfohl, Exec. Dir. of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition, plays against a student at the USF Active Gaming Lab Active Gaming / Children's Literature Symposium
Video games aren’t just about mindless button pushing anymore, as systems like the Nintendo Wii and the Xbox Kinect are encouraging players to get up off the couch and get moving. University Beat on WUSF TV takes you to USF’s Active Gaming lab as the Executive Director of President Obama’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition visits researchers who are looking at how these games can help fight childhood obesity.
Also: Any parent will tell you that young children are more likely to read, or at least be read to, when there are pictures in the book. The evolution and innovation of illustrations in children’s and young adult literature is the focus of USF Sarasota-Manatee’s Children’s Literature Symposium coming up this Saturday, February 5th. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 has a preview of the symposium, which is open to the public and features several award winning illustrators, including Mary GrandPré, illustrator of the “Harry Potter” series.
